Recovered Objects

It is a real art form to be able to transform a simple soda or tin can into a vehicle with very realistic shapes and hugely vibrant colours.

Tin can cars

The artisans who make these objects get their inspiration directly from their personal history: mythical 2CV, 4L or DS, motor bikes, planes, firemen trucks, bicycles, bush taxis…

You can find them in all sizes, from the mini-car/keyholder to the imposing big car. They can, from a simple photograph, reproduce in their finest details cars they don’t know, even the lights and the door handles.

It is phenomenal precision work.
